I am so excited today! Why? Because I just got my copy of "Quilting A Circle of Nine." Yep, it's hot off the press and ready to be in the hands of sewists and quilters across the country. And....there are two quilts in the book that yours truly quilted!!!
This is the second in a series of quilt books by Janet Houts and Jean Ann Wright, and while I am biased about it, it's a book I'd recommend for everyone's arsenal of quilting books - a great addition for your collection.
And why am I so biased? Because I got the privilege of doing the quilt work on two of Janet's quilts (squeals with delight)! I did these last spring just before the book's deadline, and so now it's great to see how everything went together in the final version. These are the quilts I quilted on my Gammill longarm machine:
The theory behind A Circle of Nine quilts is easy, and one you can use over and over in designing your own quilts. This book has 12 wonderful quilts and patterns to choose from, and you can learn the construction methods so you can set your blocks using the ingenious approach of the Circle of Nine quilts. How many quilting books give you the recipe for success in creating your own designs?

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have something I've done published. For 18 years I was a freelance writer and newspaper correspondent, and I had my byline published regularly. But I was always, always writing about what other people did. Now, my name is a credit in this book, and I am very proud to have contributed in a small, small way to this publication. I'm so tickled it makes me do The Happy Dance!!!
